The England international, who currently earns around £175,000 a week, is locked in talks with City chiefs over a new long-term contract.
According to The Times, the 23-year-old has made his half of the bargain known as he wants to earn the same as the Citizens’ best-paid player Kevin De Bruyne.
City are said to be wary of Financial Fair Play rules, though, and will therefore heavily incentivise any deal, with image rights, bonuses and a signing-on fee being spread across the duration of the contract.
